Q:

A is 3 times faster than B. If A can finish a work 32 days less than that of B, find the number of days need to finish the work if both are working together?

A) 12 days B) 24 days
C) 32 days D) 16 days

Answer:   A) 12 days



Explanation:

It is given that efficiency ratio =3:1

so time ratio will be 1:3 (since work is same)

 

Also given that time diff = 32 days. ratio difference = 3-1 =2 

2 ratio = 32 days

1 ratio = 16 days.

So A will alone finish it in 16 days and B will finish it in 16*3 = 48 days.

 

Total work = LCM of 16 and 48 = 48.

Total time = Total work/Total efficiency 

ie; 48/4= 12 days.
